Key Details

Roadmap

  • Upgrade our main server (hosted by Canonical) to xenial
    • this requires some coordination as we need to upgrade our forum to a major version and rewrite the theme,
  • Finish our new website that has been a work in progress for a few years already
  • 2018-2019 meetings (here are some of the past IRL events)

  • Draft a new rulebook for the renewal of the council, to better reflect the changes that happened to the community in the last decade
  • Evaluate and possibly host an Ubucon in the next years

Experience

In the past two years in particular:

  • The renewed sysadmin team took over from the past one, leading to some consolidation and improvements (one achievement was having all our websites under HTTPS-only mode)
  • Meetings and attendance at conferences, all listed in our LoCo Directory page: http://loco.ubuntu.com/teams/ubuntu-it.

Organization

The working teams are those groups that maintain certain services for the community. Current activities include: website, forum, mailing list, irc, wiki, translations, social media, sysadmins and more.

All groups have a dedicated mailing list (the Siena LUG provides us with a small server with a mailman instance that handles the http://liste.ubuntu-it.org domain to provide local mailing lists), and/or an email address (an alias) to be contacted. We don't have a team that administer/moderate all our mailing lists (other than overall administration of mailman), the administration/moderation is left to the members of that particular group based on their needs.

The Working Teams

The active groups, counting as of 2016-08-26 80 people in total, are:

The Italian LoCo Council is responsible for the creation of the dedicated mailing lists.
